Re: Questions re MOA on red dot sights, not scopes
Justashooter covered it on how much coverage at different distances.
However, when you turn up the brightness, it can start to glare, and that will make appear larger, and since you cannot see through the glare, if effectively is larger.
You want the minimum brightness you can get away with.
The more expensive models will often have a cleaner, more accurately sized dot. The Bushnell and the vortex, and primary arms are probably going to be the minimums here.
Dovetail on a 30-30? Haven't heard of a red dot mount for any of the micros to fit. Also haven't heard of any 30mm dovetail rings, but I've not looked for them either.
You might have to do the rail adapter mentioned. It might get you your height without a riser.
Do you have any vision problems, like astigmatism? I spent a couple decades filling drawers with red dot because they are all very starry, and unable to use for anything requiring accuracy. Cheap Chinese, Bushnell, vortex, aimpoint, all of them. The new trijicon mro was the best, but still a bit fuzzy. However, all fiber optic powered sights are perfectly sharp.
So, if you can, look through some before buying.
